Souper Salad


Souper Salad is the one of the largest soup and salad restaurant brands in the Southwest, however, we are not your average restaurant chain. Our salads, handcrafted soups and fresh baked breads are prepared from scratch daily. And with hundreds of menu selections in the Souper Salad recipe book, we never run out of new ideas.

Consumers also find there’s more to Souper Salad than fresh and healthy options. Our variety of hot entrée selections, including lasagnas and tacos, and dessert offerings, such as strawberry shortcake and soft serve ice cream, are just a sampling of the daily selection at Souper Salad.

To top it off, our menu is served in a buffet-style dining environment, providing customers with a no-muss, no-fuss destination that is also easy on the pocketbook. Souper Salad is a one-of-a-kind restaurant, a progressive yet comfortable destination for customers who want more than assembly line products and services. It’s been our focus and commitment since the day we first opened our doors in 1978.

Launched new prototype units and currently have two décor packages available for franchisees.
